Hello everyone! I hope that you’re having a fantastic day. xx For today’s bonus post (haha), I decided to share my favorite photos from this past month! I didn’t end up posting any of them on my blog throughout August, so I’ve decided to do that right here today. (: Let’s jump into this!
The first one is from August 6th.
It isn’t so much the picture itself, although it does make me happy; it’s more of what it means to me. Throughout the month of August, every day consistently, I’ve been spending time reading the Bible in the morning, praying, and drinking my iced coffee (in pretty much that order!). It has made every single day sooo much more positive than it would have been had I started the day off the way I have been for a long time: wake up, check my phone, eat breakfast, then start the day. Having my mind focused on Him in this way, and letting it be the way I start the day, has been a huge blessing in the mornings. I desire to keep doing this for as long as it works for my schedule! (Which will probably be at least another year, which is pretty cool! 😂)
The next one is a rare selfie I took on August 12th:
I was wanting to update my profile picture (as you guys have probably noticed for the past few weeks, since I changed it to this!), so I knelt on my floor one afternoon and set up my Guatemalan blanket as a backdrop and took some selfies. The one above turned out the best. 😊
Pictures three and four are from the same day – August 13th.
If you guys are following my mom over at Living Lighter in Atlanta, you probably saw that we visited the Ocmulgee Indian Mounds in southern GA a few weekends ago. I didn’t post about it, but I did take lots of pictures! (Before my phone died, at least.) My two favorites were the selfie above, when I was experimenting with my phone’s camera when we first got there, and the pic below of a butterfly/moth:
It let me get soooo close to it, so I was able to get an up-close shot!
Our next image is from August 18th.
I know I keep taking pictures of this lovely piano keyboard and sharing them on here, but I honestly can’t help myself. It is sooo gorgeous, and the pictures turn out fantastic (like this one^) because my window is directly behind it so the lighting is 😍👌🏼 also the picture above has so many nice, perfectly straight lines and I just can’t
This next one was taken on August 26th.
Elizabeth was having a wonderful time swinging at the playground we went to that day! She was being so cute and grinning almost constantly, so I took
twenty a few pictures. I love how multiple pics turned out, but the one above is the sweetest(: xx
The last one was taken on August 29th.
I was getting ready for the day that afternoon, and I couldn’t help but stop to admire my hair. It made those waves itself. I let it air dry for a couple hours, and boom. My mom said it looked like I put a crimper through it, haha!! I’m always hesitant to brush my hair when it gets all nice and wavy (and poofy) like that, but I despise tangled hair, so I lose the waves and put it up in a bun or ponytail. *sighs* #lifewiththickwavyhair
